    Description

    Apollo 11 Signed Flown Commemorative Cover with Notation by Buzz Aldrin. Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin have all signed in blue felt-tip this NASA Manned Spacecraft Center Stamp Club Official Commemorative Cover of the First Manned Lunar Exploration with a colorful cachet of two astronauts on the lunar surface. This is from the collection of Dr. Aldrin and has his handwritten notation at the upper left corner 'EEA-2 Carried to the Moon on Apollo 11', meaning this was flown cover #2 from the second man on the moon! Apollo 11 splashed down on earth on July 24 at which point, the equipment and astronauts from the spacecraft were quarantined. There is a rubber stamp on this cover stating 'Delayed in Quarantine at Lunar Receiving Laboratory M.S.C. - Houston, Texas'. As soon as this cover was released, it was taken to the nearest post office for cancellation. It bears a 6¢ U.S. Flag stamp and was cancelled August 11, 1969 at Webster, Texas. Excellent condition. This is the pinnacle, the ultimate, for any collection of space-related covers. From the personal collection of Dr. Buzz Aldrin and accompanied by a signed Letter of Authenticity from him.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
